    Just saw a tweet. They retired the number.

    This the one of the few high schools I've seen retire a number, not just the jersey

    So you're okay with someone else wearing the #2 at Scott going forward but let's wait 10 years and retire it? The next person wearing #2 may have a great career themselves. What do you do then? I think the timing is perfect. His accolades and what he did for the school are extraordinary and immediate retirement is warranted in this case.

    If that is your reason, then they don't have to assign the number in the meantime.

    Again, I think the kid would appreciate this honor much more when he isn't a kid.
